Carlsson Aigner CK65 based on the Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG |

German tuner Carlsson has announced the Aigner CK65 RS “Eau Rouge” Dark Edition (fancy name!) based on the Mercedes Benz CL65 AMG. The car, which will be on display this week at the 2008 Zurich Auto Show, was built in cooperation with leather lifestyle brand Etienne Aigner AG. The car features a body kit that includes front skirt with front spoiler made of solid carbon, shaded Bi-Xenon headlights with cone-shaped lights, radiator grille with the Carlsson badge, three-part 21 inch forged rims and an exclusive obsidian black metallic with Himalaya-gray paint finish. The interior features high-class leather upholestry for the electrically adjustable sport seats, Carlsson sport steering wheel in Leather/Alcantara combination, Carlsson sport aluminium pedal pads and illuminated door sill protectors, Aigner-A logo embossed in the front headrests and the reverse side of the front seats, while the handholds, sun shields and rear screen frame has been covered with Aigner-Alcantara.

The coupe will come with a Bi-Turbo V12 engine available with two power outputs, 705 hp and an impressive 756 hp and 1,150 Nm of torque. The latter will offer a 0-62 mph sprint in 3.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph). Combined with the Carlsson electronic lowering kit C-Tronic SUSPENSION which lowers the car by approx. 30 mm. the car is definitely a blast to drive. However, it won’t come cheap, with the 705 hp version starting at 319,000 Euros (around $400,000), while the 756 hp model starts at 374,000 Euros ($470,000). Still, considering only ten units will be built, Carlsson will probably have no problems finding customers.
